Netherfriends (Shawn Rosenblatt) is a musician living in and touring the US. He makes music in various genres but mostly focuses on rap/hip-hop centric beats. I got asked by Shawn to create an illustration promoting Netherfrends which could be used for merchandising his one-man band... and it all started from one song.

Music always gives me the kicks when I'm in a creative mode. It was no different with one of Netherfriend's songs, Don't Tweak, which I used to listen to on repeat.

I spontaneously made lettering of the song's name and posted it on my Instagram, tagging the artist. To my surprise, my work got spotted by Netherfriends and he reached out to me with the illustration project request. Pretty tight!

Shawn already had a rough idea for the graphic (which I found pretty hilarious), and my task was to translate it into an illustration.

Starting with the sketches, we went through a few feedback sessions and made adjustments. Once the final sketch got vectorized, it helped me to consider other features of the graphic, such as colors, strokes, and legibility of the lettering.
